Meet Dr. Michael Skovira

"I focus my care on the patient experience. Taking the time to establish a genuine relationship between myself and my patients allows me to create goals that address their specific needs. Every person deserves the knowledge and treatment necessary to achieve a healthy smile and the confidence that comes with it."

Family Life

He was drawn initially to the area for its gorgeous landscape, historic downtown, coastal vibe, and year-round outdoor activities. The area has a significant personal meaning to him as well since he and his wife Emily, a Speech-Language Pathologist, were engaged in Charleston and have found the area to be a wonderful place to begin a family. They both enjoy exploring the beaches, earning an appreciation of the history of the Lowcountry and its culture, and interacting with the people they’ve met here. Dr. Skovira enjoys running, photography, boating, fishing, and anything that gets him outdoors.
